PreparationsEdit

Tickets prices for the 12 different sessions ranged between £15 and £90, with student and over 60s discounts available. Higher priced tickets were tickets with better seating locations, afternoon (final) sessions and the sessions at the weekend.

For the championships 200 volunteers were recruited and helped in a variety of roles during set-up and across the event, from programme sellers and accreditation distributors to media and sports.
